The interior pages make up a nautical chart for the reefs and depths between Caryfort Reef and Conch Reef off of Key Largo (east, south east of Blackwater Sound). The front cover mentions Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, boat rentals, the outer reefs, etc. The rear cover gives rates for charter boats, wreck drives, Boat rentals, dormitory and motel prices and prices for equipment for diving. 3.) Brochure and map for the Florida Keys & Key West (provided by the Monroe County Advertising Commission) (undated, but c mid-1960's) The map is in generally Very Good condition, with a couple of small edge tears, two hand-drawn map directions and one handwritten notation for dates/ time. "Your treasure map … to the sea" "(for the vacation thrill of your life! ) " One side of the map shows "Cruise by car on the Scenic overseas Highway", with distances from Miami and information on bridge heights (? ) , along with a short list of upper key attractions, amusements, service organizations and churches, and a basic map of the keys and route for the overseas highway. The other side gives a street map of Key West, and a continuation of the overseas highway route. The bridge route goes from Key West to Welcome Station on Key Largo. 4.)

Attached to both are a mimeo'd flier of price information, with handwritten notes for different aspects of a sample seven day stay. All of the above stapled together. (It looks like the prospective diver copied the original letter and associated handwritten notes to be used for his trip, so he could keep the original at home. 7.) A Mimeographed article from Skin Diver magazine (August 1967) "Great Lakes Treasure Trove Tales: Part II Million Dollar Cache - Lake Huron - Lake Superior.

The milenary (thousand year celebration) for Romsey Abbey included church services on three succeeding days, the first, the 25th of June, 1907 included a visit by H. R. H. Princess Louise and the Choristers of Romsey Abbey (with a sermon by the Bishop of Bristol) , the second day included music by the Royal Chapel of S. George's Windsor, and the third day (June 27th) , included a plain song service by the Choir of S. Alphege, Southwark. Also in the book is a potted history of the abbey, and the lyrics and sheet music for the event. "Our story covers ten centuries of English History. What vast changes have taken place in those thousand years! Languages have died out. Nations have risen and fallen. Empires have been founded and have passed away...." "Romsey Abbey is a parish church of the Church of England in Romsey, a market town in Hampshire, England. Until the dissolution it was the church of a Benedictine nunnery. It is now the largest parish church in the county since Christchurch Priory is now in Dorset. The church was originally built during the 10th century, as part of a Benedictine foundation. The surviving church is the town's outstanding feature, which is all the more remarkable because the abbey, as a nunnery, would have been less well financially endowed than other religious establishments of the time.".

The Perisphere was a tremendous sphere, 180 feet in diameter, connected to the 610-foot (190 m) spire-shaped Trylon by what was at the time the world's longest escalator. The Perisphere housed a diorama by Henry Dreyfuss called Democracity which, in keeping with the fair's theme "The World of Tomorrow", depicted a utopian city-of-the-future. The interior display was viewed from above on a moving sidewalk, while a multi-image slide presentation was projected on the dome of the sphere. After exiting the Perisphere, visitors descended to ground level on the third element of the Theme Center, the Helicline, a 950-foot-long (290 m) spiral ramp that partially encircled the Perisphere.".

The contracts included how many acres to be farmed and what types of tomatoes per acre. Most of the acreage is in the Lodi, CA area. One early grower of tomatoes in the area, Newt Robinson, wrote about the crops in his biography: "Again dry years intervened and because of the increasing salinity of his irrigation water, Newt experimented with yet another crop: We found tomatoes were much more tolerant of poor quality water than were beans ... I was the first person I know of on Roberts Island or on Union Island who raised tomatoes. I think the year was 1935 or 1936. We raised those great big beefsteak. The vines grew so fast and with such vigor that they covered the row on the virgin land so we had a difficult time irrigating them on the final irrigation.". Very Good+ .

Published in New York, by Burr, it attacked President Abraham Lincoln in every number, while defending slavery and the right of secession. It claimed to be "the only magazine published in the United States which is devoted to a fearless and uncompromising exposure of the monstrous crimes and frauds of the party in power." Lincoln was often referred to as "Abraham I"; the conflict was "the Lincoln War" fought by "the Abolition Army"." There is constant mention of "The Rump Congress" and the Rump Revolution. Most articles discuss the American Congress and discuss the problems of Abraham Lincoln. Other articles discuss politics or political science in the United States or elsewhere.

"John Habberton (1842–1921) was an American author.

Habberton also wrote Helen's Babies, published in 1876 by Loring Publisher, Boston; and in the early 20th Century by George Routledge and Sons, London. In most of these copies, Habberton is not listed as the author. The novel is subtitled: "Helen's Babies with some account of their ways...innocent, crafty, angelic, impish, witching and repulsive by THEIR LATEST VICTIM." The book was one of the Ruby Books series for boys and girls. Habberton is acknowledged as the author of the book in an advertisement within the 1903 edition of Andersen's Fairy Tales published by Routledge.". Good+ .

[EPHEMERA] [PHOTO] [SIGNED PHOTO] [BALLET] [ANTON DOLIN]
Signed Photograph of Sir Anton Dolin
No Place: No Publisher Listed, 1965. Hardcover. B&W Photographs; SIGNED EDITION. 8"x12" photo in an 11"x14" frame. The photo is in Near Fine to Fine condition (there's a paper backing on the frame which I hate to disturb). The photo has been signed with blue ink by the subject, Sir Anton Dolin "Beloved Hazel, Devotedly, Anton. 1965" From Wikipedia: "Sir Anton Dolin (27 July 1904 – 25 November 1983) was an English ballet dancer and choreographer. Dolin was born in Slinfold in Sussex as Sydney Francis Patrick Chippendall Healey-Kay but was generally known as Patrick Kay. He trained at Serafina Astafieva's school at The Pheasantry in London's King's Road. He joined Sergei Diaghilev's Ballets Russes in 1921, was a principal there from 1924, and was a principal with the Vic-Wells Ballet in the 1930s. There he danced with Alicia Markova, with whom he went on to found the Markova-Dolin Ballet and the London Festival Ballet." and from the NY Times obituary: " As a dancer, Sir Anton repeatedly found himself the male star in ballet companies that were launched under his auspices or in which he played an influential role. When British ballet was in its infancy, Dame Ninette de Valois asked him to dance in her productions for the Camargo Society, which he helped form in 1930. When she founded what is now the Royal Ballet, Sir Anton and Dame Alicia Markova were its stars. The two young Diaghilev alumni formed one of the great partnerships of classical ballet. In 1935, both dancers left the Vic-Wells Ballet to form their own company, the Markova-Dolin Ballet, which continued until 1938. From 1945 to 1948 they headed a touring unit. In 1949, they established a new British troupe, which became London's Festival Ballet in 1950. As its artistic director and principal dancer until 1961, Sir Anton promoted an eclectic repertory and touring policy that made Festival Ballet the popular British company it is today. He was knighted in 1981." The recipient of the inscription is Hazel Hergenhohn, or Baroness Hazel Hergenhohn -- who resided in the San Francisco Bay area in the 1950's-1960's and kept on-going friendships with a number of jet-setter types. It appears she was either a patron of the SF ballet, or was able to mingle with the principles as this is only one of several signed photos of principal dancers in her collection. ; Signed by Artist.

"Sputnik 1 (Prosteyshiy Sputnik-1, "Elementary Satellite 1") was the first artificial Earth satellite. The Soviet Union launched it into an elliptical low Earth orbit on 4 October 1957. It was a 58 cm (23 in) diameter polished metal sphere, with four external radio antennae to broadcast radio pulses. It was visible all around the Earth and its radio pulses were detectable. This surprise success precipitated the American Sputnik crisis and triggered the Space Race, a part of the larger Cold War. The launch ushered in new political, military, technological, and scientific developments. "Tracking and studying Sputnik 1 from Earth provided scientists with valuable information, even though the satellite itself wasn't equipped with sensors. The density of the upper atmosphere could be deduced from its drag on the orbit, and the propagation of its radio signals gave information about the ionosphere.".

Music critic Alan Blyth said: "Her voice was a rich, vibrant contralto of intrinsic beauty." Most of her singing career was spent performing in concert and recital in major music venues and with famous orchestras throughout the United States and Europe between 1925 and 1965. Although offered roles with many important European opera companies, Anderson declined, as she had no training in acting. She preferred to perform in concert and recital only. She did, however, perform opera arias within her concerts and recitals. She made many recordings that reflected her broad performance repertoire of everything from concert literature to lieder to opera to traditional American songs and spirituals. Between 1940 and 1965 the German-American pianist Franz Rupp was her permanent accompanist.". Very Good+ .
